I have recently found my interest in wanting to do law for uni but I'm taking biology chemistry and economics which don't have much relation to law. I know you don't need a certain set of subjects but am confused as to what I should be putting for my personal statement when explaining why I chose those subjects

could you guys pls give me suggestions as to what I can say about them?

thanks in advance

Just be honest about why you did choose those subjects - presumably because you are good at science but also wanted to pick something different to show your versatility (economics). You don't need to talk about your A levels much, I would put more emphasis on why you want to study Law and what skills you have that will make you a good candidate for a Law degree

U don’t really need to explain why u chose the subjects. It’s mainly about the transferable skills developed from the subjects and how it fuelled ur passion/why it might help for academic law.

If u have more impressive/relevant things to put in ur ps I’d even leave the subjects out. The unis can see the subjects and the word/line counter is not a joke.

You don't need to explain them. If anything, you could do the good ole' STEM trope of saying that law is the only social science that combines the wider political and philosophical concerns of the humanities with the attention to detail and logical/analytical thinking of the sciences

(u can thank me for getting you into uni later)

if I really had, to be honest, it was because I was thinking of doing medicine or dentistry lol. do you still have a copy of your personal statement so I get an idea of how I can do mine if that's ok with you?

Haha no, mine was done years ago and I'm sure there are much better (and more recent) examples to be found - I didn't even apply to Law so it would be better to read ones that are targeted towards Law degrees

What did you study? (I'm guessing that it's been a fair amount of time since then)
