    They prefer you not to do A level law and at least in terms of admissions it gives no advantage. Your A level choices are fine.

    No I'm applying for Law and i only took 3 A levels (History, English and Politics)
    I wouldn't do sociology as its a bit wishy washy but don't do law it's not essential .

    Your subjects are absolutely fine. The only way to make them any stronger would be to swap Sociology for Maths but it really isn't necessary unless you were thinking of Maths anyway.
