If the legs front (to the arms) and back (to the top rail) are continuous, the legs could be grooved to accept the seat.

If the legs stop at the seat, a simple M&T joint would be used. The leg ends would be the tenon and act like a dowel. A mortise drilled at the correct angle in the seat would accept the tenon (leg end).

If you have a picture of the type chair you have in mind it may provide info for more data.
