My knee-jerk reaction to this is that it lacks a component of explanation. Law tells us what we must/must not do without giving us a reason why. To me this means that it doesn't qualify as ethics. Is this component of explanatory meaning something that others here feel is necessary for a system to be an ethical system?

well, the reason why is "because otherwise you get fined/ go to jail".

Which really isn't different from "because otherwise you go to hell" - it's not a system of POSITIVE ethics (you should do this because it's the right thing to do) - but it is a system of ethics.  I think.
