Law is a Unique Pistol manufactured by Jakobs. Law can be obtained as a mission reward from Marshall Friedman after completing Won't Get Fooled Again and as a rare drop from the Sheriff of Lynchwood. The Law exclusively uses the Dahl barrel, and can also spawn with the grip. The Law also uses the Hyperion, Jakobs, Torgue, and Vladof pistol grips.
Special Weapon Effects

Usage & Description
Law always spawns with a bayonet which gives it +100% melee damage, and is one of the few weapons in the game with a melee bonus higher than 50%. This makes it very useful for melee-focused character such as Zero's Bloodshed or Krieg's Mania builds. Unless the Law is used with it's companion shield Order, the assault rifle Rapier has double the melee damage bonus of the Law and therefore is superior for the purpose of increasing melee.
The Law also has an invisible +100% accuracy bonus when scoped, giving it accuracy comparable to a sniper rifle. This used to the fullest by a Mechromancer invested in the Anarchy tree. Since the negative accuracy of an Anarchy stack is countered by the bonus on the Law, Mechromancers can retain perfect accuracy with up to 57 stacks of Anarchy, while any more will decrease the accuracy by the usual amount per stack.
With the release of the Ultimate Vault Hunter DLC, Law gains additional utility for Zer0. Because the player can now potentially max out two entire skill trees, and only two of the skills in Zer0's sniping build actually requires a sniper rifle be used, a player can dual-spec in both Bloodshed and Sniping and thus exploit both Law's melee damage and 100% accuracy. This also makes Law a perfect weapon to use with Be Like Water.
- The flavor text is a play on the verbal expression "la-di-da" (notably the catchphrase of Annie Hall).
- Law's relation to the Order is a reference to the TV series Law & Order.
