The law is the system of rules that a society develops in order to deal with crime, social contracts and property rights. It includes statutes, case law, treatises, and regulations. Law is also used to refer to the people who work in this area, such as lawyers and judges.
A statute is a written directive issued by a legislature that gives effect to the law in some particular situation. It may include details such as who can be prosecuted for what offense, how much a fine must be, or whether a criminal offence will carry imprisonment.
Case law is the body of decisions that a court has made on previous cases, which are then used to decide future cases. These decisions can be either binding or non-binding, but they are considered important in deciding what the law is. Case law is important because it can change over time, and can affect how other courts decide similar issues.
Statutes are laws that are passed by a legislative body and have force of law in the state where they were created. These laws can set out rights and obligations for citizens, regulate businesses or make provisions relating to a specific issue such as taxation. They may be enacted by states or countries, or they can be federal law.
