Hi!
If you want to do law it is ideal to take subjects where you can show and justify your opinions. A good example is History.

Hope this helps!

as buddingdentist08 said, history would be a good option to help forming arguments in essays. however at GCSE you need to think more about what you enjoy then your career path, so bear that in mind. you can do law with any a-level subjects so pick what you enjoy, but you should do one or two essay-based subjects (english lit, history, economics etc.)

Don't worry about A levels right now. Focus on GCSEs. Pick subjects in which u know u can achieve the best.
For Law, Universities don't really care about ur subjects they only care about your grades. So pick according to your strengths..taking history may be an advantage but u need to think can I write essays? am I confident I can achieve the top grade consider the pros and cons? Hope this helps
