    There aren't any specific subjects for Law at uni. Essay based subjects are probably useful, as are languages.

    A basic knowledge of English (something you don't have)

    Do pretty much anything except for Law at A level...it doesnt really matter what you do, but some good ones include english, history and philosophy.........but any subject is good. Go for what you enjoy, but try not to do more then one 'newer' or 'wider' A Level

    You need to do a language if you wish to study european law, which means your spend one year of your degree training abroad..

    Yeah to what?

    History can be important. Depends where u want to study. For a more traditional place then u may need English lang or even lit. Also, phyk can help on the course itself. Still, law is one of the most versatile courses you can take as people need lawers from all fields. My Aunts boyfriend is a lawyer who specialises in horses. He does work in California, but still, it goes to show.
