Abstract

This article is a semiological approach to a possible smell of Law, considering that the area of semiotics may include any of the five senses. Based on the perception of Law being represented by the Latin expression "Fumus boni juris", we conjecture here if the smell of Law would be the smell of smoke, also describing its structures. From that point on, we discussed the structures of the juridical matter.

Keywords: smell, smoke, structure, matter, semiotics
