Statute (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

law

'statute' is the definition.
(I know that statute can be written as law)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for law that I've seen before include "Collection of rules for a society" , "Rule prohibiting certain actions" , "Regulation" , "Edict" , "Body of rules of conduct for a society" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald, the Penny Press, the King Feature Syndicate, the Evening Standard, the Universal, The Star Tribune and The Telegraph.
