Annotation: This article deals with the concept of "legal time". Objective reality cannot exist without time and space. Legal time expresses the beginning, duration and end of a legal action, process, norm, condition or event; process of continuous changes in legal life. The lengths of this time are playing the role of a legal fact "legal deadlines". It regulates public relations. The author identifies two sides of legal terms – the objective, due to the characteristics of physical time (duration, sequence, one-pointedness), and the subjective, that determines the ability of the legislator or law enforcer to suspend, extend, restore or reduce them. According to the author, the legal timeline provides legal certainty, stability in material and procedural relations, protection of the rights and freedoms of citizens, and discipline of participants in legal relations.
Keywords: time, term, time in law, legal term, legal term, existence of law, procedural term.
