I was thinking about "by virtue of this", but I'm afraid this doesn't match in this context. In Google I found "en su virtud" at the beginning of texts without referring to previous sections, e.g. http://www.gobcan.es/boc/anexos/2004/036/00067.pdf, and I think this is the case in my context as well.

Explanation: virtud appears twice in that sentence and I guess it would have to be translated in different manners, or, if you emphasize the second "virtud", you could even omit it at the beginning of the sentence.
The first "en su virtud" could be translated by: "as...", or "being...". Then, "virtud" is explained by the reference to the respective law.
