You need to look at your syllabus to decide which has essays or not. Different unis have different exam formats.
The only one I think will be essays is jurisprudence and that is not to everyones taste nor is it the easiest. very interesting though.
Criminology is likely to be essays as well.
GR law might have some essays as well.

Surveillance,security and the state could also have the odd essay.. have you looked what the descriptions are on the website.
As for mix of essay to problem questions then ask some final year students or the lecturers or go to the intro lecture.
Its possible for any of them to have an essay question it just depends on your unis exam format as to whether they do.


I would be picking the subjects you will get the best grades in.

The exam format could be 3 hour paper 4 problems question, 3 problem 1 essay etc. In a lot of subjects its possible to set both, so past papers will give you the clue.

Rather than just rely on essays, you might consider who is the lecturer, and whether the subject interests you. Some areas are more difficult than others imo and some involve greater volume of work.

I'd pick something that interests you.. You're more likely to score well doing modules that you genuinely find interesting and would like to practice in
