So the time is coming where I have to pick the subjects I want to study in 6th form. My school offers both IB and A level and I have concluded that I want to base my subjects in the IB next year. I want to study law at one of the top ten unis and was wondering if my subject choices would be okay. I was thinking about doing English lit at higher but I don't think I would enjoy it that much and therefore it would maybe waken my grade, here are the subjects I was thinking of, would they be okay?

Maths studies
French ab
English SL
Geography HL
Biology HL
History HL

I think this is fine, although I would recommend doing English at HL. From what you have shown above, I would suggest:

English Literature HL
History HL
Geography or Biology HL
Maths studies SL
French ab SL
Geography or Biology SL

Law is also a competitive course; to have a very strong chance into getting into a top 10 university, you should ideally be predicted 40 (or more) with 776 (or better) at HL. Best of luck.

Start practicing your LNAT at least a year before you take the test. The LNAT is really very difficult. You have to prepare for it at least 6 months prior. If you have a low LNAT score, you can forget about getting into a top UK uni for the law course.

Honestly, the LNAT isn't that difficult and practising 6 months in advance will not increase your chances. LSE don't require the LNAT and it's in the top 10, nor do Cambridge...

Not all universities offering Law ask for the LNAT even the best ones, Cambridge doesn't, I have a friend who applied in October last year he was only able to apply to Cambridge because Oxford says its compulsory.
