Texto jurídico

How would I say 'texto jurídico'? Legal text? I want to say that the Magna Carta of 1215 is 'un texto jurídico'; but more than a law, I would say that it tries to regulate the feudal customs, so I'm not sure if "legal text" is appropriate here. In Spanish we distinguish "texto jurídico" from "ley". A "texto jurídico" can be a sentence, a law or another administrative text created by the Administration of Justice.

Thanks.

Thanks, Chileno. I think I'll leave "legal".

It is a constitutional document. It is in fact the only written part of the constitution of the UK.

As far as I know (which is not very far), yes.

I've just learnt that only 3 of the 63 clauses are still valid today. Now you know something else.

Well, you are the one reading a book about British history, so there we are.

Wikipedia disagrees with the second statement too, pointing to such acts as the Act of Union, Human Rights Act, etc.
