Not at all, maths is pretty much non-existent in law. Though, it is useful to take essay based subjects.

Some unis do include gcse maths & english language in their entrance requirements for undergrad law courses, so you will have to confirm whether any of the unis that you plan to apply to require any mandatory maths qualifications.

When looking at law unis I’ve looked at don’t ask for any subject in particular I’m taking psychology history and English literature and EPQ is that a good combo for law ?

I’m taking English lit, history and psychology and EPQ is this a good combo? Or should I have taken maths instead of psychology

Brilliant combo imo. As long as you got a 6 in maths at GCSE that’s all you’ll need. If you get good grades in your subjects you’ll have a strong application

Only to the extent you need it to meet the min requirements applied to all undergrads for uni entrance at your chosen uni. A 6 should be sufficient.
If you later on chose to become a tax lawyers then I think it helps to be highly numerate, but they are quite specialised.

There are literally no subject requirements, even essay subjects are not necessary loads of people get in with all STEM subjects

Yes, that's a good combo.
Are you going to be doing the LNAT?
