Humanities (History, Geography, Politics etc) and English Literature especially tend to be really good starting points. Look at university websites and look at the subject requirements! Generally, however, from what I've gauged law tends to be quite open in terms of A Level choices. Do what you're good at and do what you love.

English Literature - plays, poems, novels
English = English Language - accents, representations, how children learn language, how english has changed over time

English Lit is considered harder and therefore, for competitive unis, better

Coursework aside, in terms of exams, you're looking at two 2.5 hour papers comparing around 5ish texts. English Lit is difficult and can't just be learned like a science subject. You have to read around! I am on the OCR course and most of the exams consist of comparative essays between 2 texts and commentaries on passages given to you.

English literature is definitely difficult but also worthwhile. It is the analytical and argumentative skills you are required to demonstrate that are invaluable in the context of law.

On Edexcel, you have a comparative piece of coursework and three other papers adding up to a total of 6 hours of exams. It would be extremely difficult to do in a year purely due to the demanding nature of the course, especially in terms of the skills required.

History, Politics and English Literature would be a good choice.

One of my friends who is now studying Law took History, English Lit and Maths. Maths was her personal choice as she loved it. Doing History is quite important I think. For arguments/critical analysis English Lit comes in handy. The third subject is entirely up to you
