  Legal Definition of Statute
These remedial statutes are themselves divided into enlarging statutes, by which the common law is made more comprehensive and extended than it was before; and into restraining statutes, by which it is narrowed down to that which is just and proper.
Personal statutes are those which have principally for their object the person, and treat of property only incidentally; such are those which regard birth, legitimacy, freedom, the fight of instituting suits, majority as to age, incapacity to contract, to make a will, to plead in person, and the like.
Real statutes are those which have principally for their object, property, and which do not speak of persons, except in relation to property; such are those which concern the disposition, which one may make of his property either alive or by testament.

The statutes that are published in a state’s code are grouped by subject matter into Titles, as in Title 11 of the United States Code (bankruptcy laws).
Statutes, which are created by the U.S. Congress and by our state legislators, attempt to lay out the ground rules of "the law." When disputes arise over the meaning of statutes, state and federal courts issue court opinions that interpret the statutes more clearly.
For instance, one small claims statute may tell you that small claims court can be used for claims involving $5,000 or less while another statute that appears later in the chapter may set a lower dollar limit for cases involving evictions.
