Some law unis will look favourably on English, but most of them don’t have any set of a-levels requirements as far as my knowledge goes.

I’m also looking to take law at uni and the advice I got before starting a levels was to do any BESIDES law. (I’m taking history,psychology and biology btw)

Law doesn't have any specific subject requirements so just pick what you'll enjoy

I have three friends planning on doing law, ones doing chemistry, law and psychology, the other one is doing art, psychology and sociology, and the other one is doing economics, English lit (or she may change to sociology in September if she doesn't like it) and history so it probably doesn't matter too much x

The Law degree is, simply, making debates, arguments and looking at evidence. So any subjects that have this general structure are favoured i.e. English Literature, possibly English Language, and others such as Psychology, Philosophy. Although, Maths is a great A-Level and well-respected among Universities.

No unless you are applying for scots law, which an essay subject is required like uni of Edinburgh. However, I'm assuming you want to do english law so no you dont - they dont expect anyone to have any knowledge of law so any is fine, even 3 stem subject. Do those A levels instead. You want to have the highest grades you can so the best thing to do to get those is choosing subjects you will enjoy to motivate yourself to get those grades.

I heard it’s actually looked down on and some universities prefer to take students without a law a level

They are neutral about it and they wouldn’t not take students just because they did law a level - they would say in their requirements. It would be the case back then but the new a level reform would have changed this. Look at point 7 of this thread as well: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6247090 there’s another thread talking about this but it’s somewhere in the law forum
