What's the legal term for bringing several different judicial rulings and bills, etc. under one act.

I'm doing a presentation on Corporate manslaughter tomorrow, and can't for buggery think of the word.

Cheers,

Judicial rulings in the UK don't tend to be incorporated into Acts (I think, could be wrong) because the judiciary is entirely separate from the legislature apart from the Law Lords in the House of Lords
Past judicial rulings are just used as influence for future cases
Rockin' shit

I thought the Judicial rulings set the precedent for a crime and (assuming there was no specific act stating that said crime was ACTUALLY a crime) when the act declaring it a crime was made, the first (or in some cases amended) decision of the judge dealt with it would become the suitable punishment (again, assuming that the judge wasn't bat-**** crazy and made mega harsh sentences)?

But hey, I could be wrong.
