A statute is a formal written enactment of a legislative authority that governs the legal entities of a city, state, or country, association or federation by way of consent. Typically, statutes command or prohibit something, or declare policy. Statutes are rules made by legislative bodies; they are distinguished from case law or precedent, which is decided by courts, and regulations issued by government agencies.
