    Correcrt the sentence "statute will do what it should do"

    There is a proverb in my native language which means like :
    ( I am trying to translate it into English)

    The statute will do ( automatically ) what it should do.

    Could you please correct the sentence?

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Statute? You mean the law will enforce/enact itself?

    The statute will function as intended.

    Yes.

    I think what konungursvia said will mean the same in my language.
