if you haven't already tried this, you could try and get work experience in one of the law firms that aren't so big or in the city etc (some applicants seem to be fixated on getting work exp in city firms but they aren't the only law firms).
if you can't get work experience, volunteering in a charity shop or something maybe a good idea (or a part time job) because you'll be in a position where you interact with people.
also, extracurricular activities like sports/music/volunteering are generally impressive.

ive already been to an event at a london university which gave a workshop on Law and i have booked a law course to go to (which was quite expensive )
As i have already said my academic side is quite good with straight As and A*s at GCSE (came in the top 10 of the country with 100% in one subject) i write for the school newspaper, gained awards, prefect...etc
My AS subjects are Maths, History, English Lit, Religious Studies and Critical Thinking...dropping maths possibly.
i feel that when they read my PS it will be too academic (as in not balanced) and as if i do not have a life...
