Guatama Buddha told his followers to not just do whatever he told them to, but to listen to his teachings and then meditate on them, and come to the truth about the best way to act themselves. So there aren't really Buddhist "laws", although many cultures which are predominantly Buddhist have laws based on Buddhist concepts. The Buddha did offer some precepts that guide how we should behave in order to more skillfully find our way to enlightenment. The most basic of these are:

Don't kill.

Don't steal.

Don't engage in illicit sex.

Don't speak divisively.

Don't speak abusively.

Don't engage in idle chatter.

Don't tell lies.

Abandon greed.

Abandon ill will.
