An integrated rate law represents the rate of a reaction with respect to time, so you can use it to find how quickly a reaction has progressed over a certain amount of time. A rate law only involves the initial rates.
The rate law is a differential equation that gives change in concentration of reactants with respect to time. When you integrate it, you get an equation that shows how reactants change as a direct result of changing the value of t.
The rate law shows the rate of the reaction plotted against time while the integrated rate law shows the actual concentration at certain times. If you think about it in terms of calculus and the definition of an integral, this makes sense.
