Hiya!
First off, I don't think there is a 'set option' on what you should take for law.
1) both history and geography play a part, however i'd go for history since that is a good foundation for a law degree, with all the essays etc. although, geog has essays too.
2) honestly, whatever floats your boat. If you play an instrument to grade 4 standard, then you could easily get top grades for music. I'd not go towards food tech as it's alot of theory. Maybe between ICT/health and social care.

Hope it helps x

French would be good, it shows different skills. I don't think any of them will close any doors. Just do the ones you will enjoy and will get good grades in

If I was you, I'd definitely choose history and French, as universities really love those subjects, and especially for law.

As a previous poster has said there isn't a set selection of GCSE's to do in order to get to law. In my opinion,
-History - You'll probably develop more skills through this that you can transfer over e.g. essays etc.
- French - People don't understand how useful it is to have a language GCSE, I understand that you don't actually learn the language in a way that you'd be able to apply it to a conversation but as a qualification it's incredibly useful! Seeing as in many schools it is compulsory to take a language at GCSE you'd be putting yourself in a good position by offering as good subjects as other pupils.
- If you are particularly good or passionate about any of the creative subjects, go for it! If not geography would the better option as the other subjects I believe involve a lot more coursework/controlled assessments which can be time consuming.

All in all, go for something you'll enjoy studying but ensuring you'll get good grades at the end of it as law will be an academically demanding subject so any universities that do look at GCSE results, you'll need a high proportion of good grades - the specific subjects won't matter as much.
