Meaning of "Fulfilled the Law" in Coptic Liturgy

Hi brethren in Christ,
I am a Reformed Christian. I have read a couple of Shenouda III's books, attended liturgy, and had correspondence with quite a few Copts. I am curious about one part of the Coptic Liturgy which says (at least in English), speaking to Christ, "You fulfilled the Law on my behalf". Now, in Reformed theology that little phrase means a great deal and connects to the doctrine of justification by the imputation of Christ's righteousness. But I would like to know what it means to Copts? What are the theological implications which are expressed in this line of the Liturgy? Thanks and God bless.
