The law of Sweden is Continental law. The law was unified by legislation of King Magnus Eriksson circa 1350. There were two general codes. These were replaced by a single code which was promulgated in 1734.[1]

Sweden has, like many other countries, a written constitution. It consists of four fundamental laws. Distinction is made between fundamental laws and other laws. Fundamental laws differ from other laws by requiring two identical decisions to be made by the Riksdag separated by an election in order to be changed.[2]

The Swedish Code of Statutes (Svensk författningssamling, or SFS) is the official chronological compilation of all new Swedish laws enacted by the Riksdag and ordinances issued by the Government. Also see the Sveriges Rikes lag, or the Book of Statutes, and Svenska förtfattningar i översättning till främmande språk. Register över gällande SFS-författninggar contains alphabetical and chronological indexes.[3]
