My two main degree choices are either Law and Geology, and Law is highly competitive. I was wondering what the job market is like for Geology, apparently, it's in demand but doesn't seem very competitive. On Indeed.com, after searching geology, there were only 350 results, whereas law has 44,500 search results.

That's a very poor way of working out job prospects. No job is going to land in your lap by doing one degree or the other by magic. You have to work towards a particular career and gain the necessary skills and qualifications. Think about what you want to do and go from there ans if unsure go with the degree that interests you more.

Either degree doesn't mean you are restricted to those career paths. You could study Geology and still be a lawyer for instance.

I wasn’t really considered with that, more that the fact that geology may be a dying career

Depends on what sort of career you're interested in. Geology degrees doesn't = geology career

Would I be able to get into a Law or CS/technology career with Geology?

Law you don't need a law degree for. The others you may struggle with unless you do a conversion course.

For law, yes - I have already said this to you (more than once)

where is technology coming from? seems awfully random considering the two degrees you're thinking about - even those seem random.

Why not look at geophysics - more maths based than Geology so a better position to move to tech and some specialist jobs become available. Or if you are interested in law and science look at being a patent lawyer. Not so competitive (history grads need not apply!) and pays loads from what I've seen. Electronics type engineering courses may be a good background for this. Alternatively quantity surveying ties things together skills wise.
