impact

Here is my best explanation:

'effect' is the definition.
(impact is a kind of effect)

'independent member introducing law' is the wordplay.
'independent' becomes 'i'.
'member' becomes 'mp'.
'introducing' says to put letters next to each other.
'law' becomes 'act' (I've seen this before**).
'i'+'mp'+'act'='IMPACT'

'of' acts as a link.
