    For Law, essay-based A levels are looked upon more favourable than science A levels. However, you still need to take subjects that will give you the best possible grade. So whilst History is a more preferred subject but Maths would give you a better grade then take Maths as long as you have an essay based subject like English Lit in your 3 choices.

    Sociology is also a good essay-based subject.

    Maths is definitely good because it’s about problem solving / critical thinking (tbh maths is good for literally everything)

    History is very good because it’s basically about sustaining coherent / strong arguments about real life events etc.

    Other essay subjects are also good for the same reason (after all, an essay is essentially an argument).

    And idk about law A level, sorry

    If you want to become a lawyer, the two usual routes are

    A) Do a law degree. Then take the LPC or BPTC.
    B) Do any other degree than law. Then take the GDL, and then the LPC or BPTC.

    To get on a law degree, your A-Levels can be pretty much anything. All humanities, all social science, all STEM, mix of all. For any other degree than law, the course-specific requirements will vary.

    But outside of degree entry requirements, LPC/BPTC/GDL have no A-Level subject requirements. Law firms do not either; some have an ABB+ threshold but this is not attached to subject combinations.

    When Science Doesn't Meet the Law

    New Law Journal, 10th July 2008

    https://www.newlawjournal.co.uk/cont...oesnt-meet-law

    There's a lot of ingrained luddism in the legal profession but Britain can't survive the 21st century with scientifically illiterate lawyers or lawyers with an 'analogue' mindset in a digital world.

    At the moment there's a glut of law graduates so having uncommon skills and knowledge could be an advantage in career development over the historians of Victorian England.

    Law isn't the best option - it's generally seen as a soft A-level; one of the subjects, like psychology, that's great at degree level but not so great at A-level.

    You don't need Law A-level to do a law degree and I would advise against it - History or English literature are far better.

    I'd personally avoid law. Unis don't like law so much b/c they want to be able to mould your legal mind from scratch
