The author examines the two levels of such interaction – external and internal. The first establishes the nature, concept, properties and functions of law, as well as its evolution in time (traced on the example of performance of the normative legal act). The second reveals the temporal tools used in law for regulating legal relations (for example, timeframes and terms). Special attention is given to the first of the aforementioned levels of interaction between time and law. As the main research method, the author applies the dialectical method of cognition.
