For law it is probably much better to do history, although I don't think unis specifically ask for it.

For law history is better but I too did geography gcse and didn't do history. For law neither is required at gcse but I would recommend history for A level and if you want A levels to be easy then do history gcse as the whole structure of essay writing and technique will be familiar and so you will find it a little easier.
However I picked history for A-level and for AS level I got an A, i am currently doing history A2.
I think that history gcse will just allow you to learn the technique/structure of essays and that's about it, everyone else in your class will be like you as you'll all have to learn the a level content whether you have done GCSE history or not.
At the end of the day it doesn't really matter what gcse's you do, (choices are mostly important at a level) I think you should chose the subject you find the easiest and the one you enjoy the most!

best of luck with whatever you decide to pick!

Okay, first of all: you do not need history GCSE to be a lawyer. This is nonsense and I would be surprised if more than 50% of lawyers did history at GCSE.

Take whichever you like more. Personally, I preferred Geography and found History a bit more difficult, but both are pretty fun.
