English: A statute is a formal written enactment of a legislative authority that governs a state, city, or county. Typically, statutes command or prohibit something, or declare policy. The word is often used to distinguish law made by legislative bodies from case law and the regulations or by-laws issued by government authorities. Statutes differ from constititions, as in most (but not all) modern states the constitution has supremacy over ordinary statute law.
