You need to do some work-experience to see what the reality of law work actually is. Get a placement at a local solicitors office and/or sit in the public gallery of your local Magistrates Court etc. You will realise that 'Law' is actually a great deal less glamorous that you might have thought! Its a good career but isnt all about the stuff you see on telly.
Economics covers a vast range or areas and could point your career path in a many different directions. You have the Maths skills that somewhere like Bristol would want, so Economics might be a good choice.
Be aware that there are many different courses that might appeal to you apart from a simple choice of 'Law' or 'Economics'. Look at subjects you might not have thought of and look at degrees that combine subjects.
Some examples :
International Development with Economics : https://www.uea.ac.uk/study/undergra...eas-experience
Politics and International Relations : http://www.bath.ac.uk/study/ug/prosp...onal-relations
Social Policy with Criminology : http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/under...h-criminology/
Politics and Economics : http://www.surrey.ac.uk/undergraduat...-and-economics
Human Rights : https://courses.aber.ac.uk/undergrad...rights-degree/
Law with Accounting and Finance : https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/study/un...hons/overview/
