Introduction: The legal interpretation activity is an independent type of legal activity. In the course of its development, it closely interacts with the related legal categories. Its connection with the term “legal hermeneutics” is no exception. Methods: the methodological framework for this study is a set of methods of scientific knowledge, including the methods of system analysis, comparative law, formal legal, comparative legal. Results: the author’s justified position is based on the study of the terms “legal interpretation activity” and “legal hermeneutics”, as well as the specifics of their interaction. Conclusions: as a result of the study, it was found that legal interpretation activity and legal hermeneutics interact as a part and a whole. On the one hand, the subjects of legal interpretation activity use the methodology and achievements of legal hermeneutics in their work, and on the other hand, they constantly add something new to it, enriching and developing their knowledge about the meaning of the legal norms. That is why we should talk about the complementary nature of their interaction, which should be considered as a prerequisite for the development of the theory of the legal interpretation activity.

Key words: legal activity, legal hermeneutics, law interpretation activity, interpretation of law, clarification, explanation, interpretative act, interpretative practice.
