enact

Here is my best explanation:

'make law' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'stick up document finally' is the subsidiary indication.
'stick' becomes 'cane' (cane is a kind of stick**).
'up' says the letters should be written backwards (in down clue: letters go upwards).
'finally' suggests the final letters.
The last letter of 'document' is 't'.
'cane' in reverse letter order is 'enac'.
'enac'+'t'='enact'
