A-level Law is considered on parity with every other A-level. It is neither an advantage or a disadvantage. If you are interested in the subject, take it. But it makes no difference to your UCAS application. Anyone who says otherwise is talking absolute rubbish.
There is no particular advantage or disadvantage to studying Law before you apply.
And I'm pretty sure every other University echo's these views.

I want to pick law at uni. Would it hinder my application if i did A level law just to AS level. I'm so confused because i'm getting different information from different sources.
I did A Level Law, and I got 5 offers for Law at Uni( not showing off, just trying to be helpful ) so it certainly didn't put me at a disadvantage. I asked this question on Open Days and every Uni said the same.
I absolutely loved A Level Law; as well as thoroughly enjoying every aspect of it, it really helped me to make sure that it is what I want to study at Uni, and gave me stuff to talk about on my PS.
My personal opinion is, Law is what you want to do, so you might as well spend 1/2 years doing something you enjoy

As the above stated, I did law a level and got all 5 offers from London uni's for law. If you apply to a university where you may be interviewed you could be questioned on why you only did the subject to AS Level, after all its not an a level if you don't do the A2 too!
Law at University is nothing like A Level though, it's around 10x harder and more stressful :P
