Why? There's absolutely no need to do so. OP could literally get into Oxbridge with those subjects.

Please refrain from giving poor and misinformed advice.

You're fine. Universities really don't care what's 'facilitating' and what's not. As long as your subjects are relatively academic, you have absolutely nothing to worry about.

Just make sure to do the subjects that you enjoy the most / will get you the best grades.

Yes these are great subjects to do law. Just remember to work hard because these subjects are definitely not easy. I myself struggled with english language at gcse and got a grade 4, and it is a shame as i see people who only came into uk for 1 year and achieve grades 6's and 7's in english language. Luckily i got the grades to do Maths, biology and chemistry at college, and i am spending a good few hours everyday studying for them. Whatever you do, do it with passion and make friends who think likewise and try to dedicate a certain number of hours everyday to your subjects because not a single A level is easy. It says it in the name "A" level. Anyways Good luck for your a levels and future plans!

Yeah, no problem. If im being honest i am not the best person to get advise from as i was consistently getting E's in maths in my first year of A level and barely scraping C's in biology and chemistry in first year. However, that was mostly because i procrastinated a lot and just was too lazy to revise. Back then i did 1 solid hour of work a day on a good day. Ive looked at a ton of forums advising how many hours, and I have found that if you spend 10 hours a week on each subject you should be on target to get A's. Mind you your revision has to be good revision with no distractions. Right now im finding it hard to do 3-4 hours a day and some days i do nothing. I would say build a routine to do at least 3 hours a day on weekdays and 4-5 hours on weekends. You can bump this up during exam season.
