SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

deadline for submission: APRIL 2004

We will organize the panels for the Association which will meet in
conjunction with the International Association of Semiotic Societies
that will meet in Lyon from July 7-12, 2004. We will hold our meeting
concurrently with theirs, with the possibility of people going to
sessions at the main meeting, and their members sitting in with us and
perhaps schedule a small reception where those who are interested can
find out about us.

The theme of the international conference is Signs of the World:
Interculturality and Globalization, and while papers directed toward
that very broad topic are welcome, in the spirit of Bobbie Kevelson we
are of course open to all varieties of LEGAL SEMIOTICS and LAW AND
LANGUAGE.

If you are interested in participating, please send me a short
(paragraph length abstract) your name, title, and contact
information. Thanks so much.
