I think by their very nature these will be questions that you can't/ possibly shouldn't prepare for.

Will it be things like 'Abortion - critically analyse views for and against' like it is in general studies papers, or will it require general knowledge about the law (of which I have none).

Sorry, but I don't really know.

If I had to guess, I'd say that they will be more like critical thinking type questions, but I don't really know.

The Cambridge website is the best place to look, also, you should be able to get hold of a specimen paper even if you have to contact them...

Well, here's a link to an article on the Guardian about Cambridge 'thinking skills' tests. There's a link at the bottom of the page to a sample test. It mentions a few subjects in the article, but not law, so this probably isn't quite what you're looking for, but it might be of some help.

It's unlikely to be an exam on Law, I'd guess, since they don't like people to have studied Law before they come up - they like to have a clean sheet. It might have bits that they'd expect everyone to know but it's more likely that you'd just need general knowledge and an analytical way of thnking.

Though please bear in mind that I'm a scientist so definitely not speaking from experience!!
