LAW: The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "law / rule / principle"
This sign can be initialized with an "R" to mean "rule," a "P" to mean "principle," or a "C" to mean commandment (as in "The Ten Commandments"). A combination of a "C" that changes to an "E" is used to indicate "Code of Ethics."
LAW: Touch the palm of the right "L" hand to the left flat-hand palm. Then pull it off an inch or two, move it down an inch or two and touch the left palm again.
Note: If you use the sign LAW in a compound sign such as "brother in law" or "attorney" then you should drop the second contact in the sign for law.
YOU WISH your-SELF LAWYER? (Do you wish you were an attorney?)
Sample sentence: I'll explain the rules.
NOTE: This sign doesn't mean "principal" (spelled with an "al.") Principal uses a different sign.
