The Swedish school system is a bit complicated here, High School is equivalent to College there, however, high school here have two different "lines" - one is the social line whereas you can become lawyer, judge, teacher etc. and you have the nature line where you can become doctor, proffesor in math etc.
Basically the lines you choose in HS, pretty much decides what you want to become and is your reference to University.
We read Social line with the profile law and forensics, which means we read more competense for law rather than focusing on science and all that at high school.
Our High School here is pretty much High School and College together in USA.
You're going to need university degrees before applying to law school. The way I explained it to UK students is that in America we basically don't have college. We have high school and then you go to University. A lot of us call university "college" but mostly for colloquial reasons.
