Membership categorisation analysis (MCA) is a well-accepted approach in the areas of conversation analysis and ethnomethodology―yet it is hardly known in mainstream semiotics, let alone in social semiotics; and even less so in the comparatively recent uptake of social semiotics by legal scholars. Despite this, we think the basics of MCA could have important consequences for the emergent field of legal semiotics and we try to show this here by reference to aspects of family law in Australia.
