It depends where you are, what age you are and what kind of lawyer you want to be. For example, if you want to be a notary public, you need to study at least one foreign language (preferably two or three). There are three main ways of becoming a lawyer:

1. Study for a law degree or acceptable alternative (in some universities the name of the course is jurisprudence) then sit the Common Professional Exam. From then on you sign indenture papers called Articles and work as a trainee lawyer to become a solicitor or a barrister/advocate

2. Register with one of the societies of notaries and train on the job (for this you do not need a degree to start but you do need languages

3. Train as a legal secretary then take a job with a firm of lawyers, a law centre or the legal department of a local authority and register to train as a Legal Executive. The training is part-time, usually at night school or with day-release. Once you are fully qualified as a legal executive, you are also exempt from sitting the Common Professional Exam and your qualifications count as a law degree. You can then serve Articles to train as a solicitor or barrister. This is the easiest way to train because the costs are low and you only have to sit exams connected with the work that you do, so you get a law degree without getting into debt and you can earn your own fees as soon as you are partly qualified as a legal executive. There are similar advantages to training as a notary.

You don't have to take any specific classes in high school to become a lawyer. However, depending on what type of lawyer you might want to become, certain classes could help you in the future.

Do a little research with your preferred University, find out what they require for their pre-law applicants. High school classes don't matter. Go to college. Do well in your courses. Study for the LSAT and do well on that also. In most cases, law schools won't even look at HS transcripts.
