From my personal experience writing a personal statement should include why u want to study that course, something you’ve done or doing which relates to the course and maybe why u want to study at that uni. But overall even if u don’t get ur 5 you’ll get into a uni on results day.

Give reasons as to why you love to study those courses. Focus on skills and experience too.

'Sociology informed your view of society, a society which has the rule of law at its core' < You easily turn that into at least half a paragraph
'During my A Level studies, I did politics which sparked an interest in constitutional law...' < Again you can go on here, but that should link those to subject to law, you can go on to state that English Lit prepared you with strong essay writing skills or something. Also if this is helpful, don't use the words I've used here as it will come up on a plagiarism checker.

sociology and politics are directly related to law. have you read any law related text? what has inspired you to study law and not sociology or a politics degree?

Focus on the stuff outside of your A Levels that show your interest in law - that is far more unique and interesting to the admissions tutors

Talk about your interests and hobbies in a lot of detail. Mention any useful skills learned as well. If you have any sort of previous volunteering experience then do not omit it. Be completely honest. Avoid selling yourself short however.
