Clause

A section, phrase, paragraph, or segment of a legal document, such as a contract, deed, will, or constitution, that relates to a particular point.

A document is usually broken into several numbered components so that specific sections can be easily located. The SUPREMACY CLAUSE, for example, is part of Article IV of the U.S. Constitution.
