Go for Maths. It shows a slightly different sort of ability and at least some Cambridge colleges prefer candidates to have Maths A level.

I believe History, English Lit and Maths are the 3 most common choices for Law and they are a good combo (although plenty of other things are also good).

Maths! It may seem "unrelated" to law and the other subjects listed but it is extremely useful and interesting. I agree with what @Compost said and also, I found out an intriguing fact about the application of Maths only a few months ago. I knew there were many applications of Maths previously but the Sally Clarks case with Roy Meadow involved is interesting. Read into that case if you want. As for your other subjects listed, which one is more interesting or would seem more worth it at A level?

I'd say english lit, history, maths and politics. Maths woud be good as it shows you have a variety of skills and I personally think politics suit a law degree more than rs. But if you prefer rs definitely do that as that's still fine (especially cause it's your 4th)

If you have an idea already of where you'd apply to study Law, check out their entry requirements. They may be subject specific and / or have preferences. English and History would definitely be good choices
