    I think a level law is a good shout
    unless you enjoy both English subjects very much you should pick one-youll be bored out of your mind.
    if you don't know what else to do maybe pick up a language-its a lot of work at the start however once you get past the first couple of months you're well on your way to speaking at a conversational level

    id say English Lit, History and another of your choice. History especially is very useful for law applicants

    Any academic A-level choice is suitable for Law. In general English Literature is considered more "academic" than Language - the joint course is usually acceptable in the same vein as Literature. If you do Language only I would suggest ensuring your other two options are purely academically rigorous options - you may want to refer to, for example, the LSE entry criteria subject combinations page to get an idea on what they specifically consider preferred academic courses vs others, which tends to translate to other universities.
