Summary These papers investigate the institution of the law with and as part of a multiplicity of sign systems. First, law can be understood as part of a global system of meaning; second, despite the homogenising threat of globalisation, the play of legal meaning retains a socio- historical specificity. Summerfield from Murdoch University
