I am currently in yr11 and will be taking A levels next year. I have always had an interest in a career within Law therefore I was wondering what subjects to choose and what subjects to avoid?

For law you can pretty much do anything. Even medicine based subjects can break into high end law universities without issues.

Subjects that are too sexy for the course would probably be like History, English lit, maths, sciences, classic/ancient history, languages, economics, geography.

But other good subjects (and fairly common) would be subjects like politics, English language, psychology / sociology etc.

Try avoid having more than 1 'soft' subject.

for law there are no specific subject requirements however it is strongly advised that your subjects reflect that you obtain skills like being a confident communicator which drama/English language would demonstrate. you must also prove you can be critical and analyse which history and English literature demonstrate. also picking a language looks good as there are law courses which combine languages such a French which broadens career opportunities and clients when you are qualified and working as a professional lawyer

Soundest advice here. Usually universities value hard essay subjects (where you have to argue and be analytical) like Eng Lit, History & Politics in combination with a logic-based subject like Mathematics or Physics.

Maths history and econ are a classic combo

I would try at least politics or english. if you dont like it then so be it, at least you tried ^^
(Politics is generally easier i hear)

I am trying to avoid doing English Lit because I seem to not enjoy it as much as other subject. Yet I am aware that by choosing English Lit my communication skills which are required in this type of career will significantly improve.
