Can you use law instead of legislation in this sentence:
"The Offences Against the Person Act 1861 is Victorian legislation not made to be a logical set of rules but instead it is legislation that brought the then relevant laws into one Act, called a consolidation Act. "

I see the word legislation links more to statutory law but can it not be replaced by the word law.

Thanks in advance

Is this a stupid question? I want to make it clear that if it is I am not trying to be stupid on purpose I am honestly unsure about the word to use.

So I would really appreciate help. Also, if it helps this is for an essay that I am writing regarding the non-fatal offences and whether they are in need of reform.
