Hey guys, I wanted to ask whether the subjects I have chosen for IBDP would be useful and helpful for studying law in the university. The subjects I have right now are:

HL Bio
HL Chemistry
HL Economics

SL Math (Standard level)
SL English A Lang&Lit
SL Russian A Literature

What do you recommend to change? Or is everything alright?
I’m still quite unsure what do I want to do in future, but law is the likeliest choice.

Thanks a lot

I don’t recommend getting Chem HL, for law is completely useless, complicated and a Waste of time

@I am taking very similar courses. Don't hesitate, this is what suggested in our school. Only course you are missing is history. One of the sciences seems unnecessary.

HL Eng A, Econ, History are the most preferable option

Firstly, Bio and Chem (especially chem) are very hard subjects that are completely unnecessary if you're looking to go into law in the future. Uni's don't usually specify history as a requirement like the person above stated, however it would be an advantage. That being said I would definitely make some changes in your subject choices if you're sure about perusing law in the future. Firstly the only actual requirement there may be is doing HL English. It's pretty obvious as to why and a complete necessity for a career in law. As sciences are unnecessary, I would suggest doing biology; but at SL. This is because it's much easier to score in than chem. Overall this is what I'd recommend:
HL: English A LangLit
HL: Economics
HL: History or Psychology
SL: Maths
SL: Biology
SL: Russian

U should have global politics (or at least history). It would also help greatly if they were at hl cuz a lot of unis require that
