    I'm going to be choosing my A Levels after summer and I'm stuck on what to do. I'd like to study Law at a Russell Group Uni. I'm thinking of taking:
    History
    English
    Maths
    Either French or Religious Studies

    Would French or RS be better? Are these good subjects?

    I think they are fine the norm for law. Between French and rs go for French if you think you'll do well in it

    Those subjects sound about right

    What about doing A level Law? Although universities say you can do matching courses, Law may give you a head start when applying to Universites.

    You would think that would be logical, but from previous threads on this topic I understand that some of the top universities really look down on A-level law as being weak.

    Tbh, I'd say RS over French because they talk about crime and ethics ( well at least in the Scottish version they do ) which could probably help with law whereas French isn't really relevant. Have you tried contacting your preferred universities to ask?

    It doesn't matter, just take as many facilitating subjects as you can.

    Your subjects are fine. I would say go for French as it's useful having an additional language and RS isn't really relevant to Law anyway.
