The article is devoted to the theoretical aspects of the use of the concept of legal means for
the study of the process of implementation and protection of legal interests in the procedural
sphere. The influence of the existing approaches to understanding the more General category
of “legal regulation mechanism” and its derivatives on the understanding of legal means is
demonstrated. Conducting research within the framework of the structural and functional
approach, the tasks that can be effectively solved using an instrumental approach are
identified. An attempt is made to reconcile the existing approaches to the understanding of
legal means from the perspective of legal regulation of the activities of participants of public
relations, where legal means play the role of mediating the order of implementation and fixing
the course and result of the behavior of subjects. It is argued that both in the material and
in the procedural legislation there are formal requirements for the behavior of participants
in legal relations, forming more or less formal and typed models. The specific procedural
means for the suitability for the protection of material legal interests, implementation and
protection of procedural interests are investigated. The interaction of material – legal and
procedural branches of law in the regulation of the implementation and protection of material
and procedural interests, aimed at overcoming the understanding of procedural branches
as auxiliary-service in relation to the material. Author’s definitions of procedural means of
realization and protection of material-legal and procedural interests are offered.

Keywords: procedural means; legal interests; procedural interests; implementation and
protection of legal interests.
