In the article the transitional state of understanding of the category of public service in modern administrative law is analyzed. From the stable understanding of it as the state service and activities of various categories of public servants, the emergence of works that formulate a new approach to public service to lack of sustainable vision, what is meant by this category and whether to identify the parallel existing categories of state service and public service. The purpose of the article is to study the distinction between the categories "state service" and "public service", both of which are considered as generalizing for the whole range of people who realize the tasks and functions of the state, and formulate own vision of the category "public service". The findings of the article indicate that the concept of "public service" is capable of combining various groups of public servants, not only the category of state service and mentally demonstrate the systemic change of interrelated categories (from "state administration (public administration) / state service" to "public administration / public service"). In other words, this pair of concepts looks more contemporary, corresponds to the views of the less traditionalist scientific school of the specialties of Ukrainian "public administration", and also corresponds to the approaches of sources of developed countries of the world, therefore the author's vision of terminology looks as the most optimal in accordance with the modern role, in general - public administration, and at the level of employees who carry it out - the public service. Describing the approach to consolidating the notion of public service at the normative legal level, the author noted the existence of a group of laws on service (state service, service in bodies of local self-government, militarized public service), which is not the best solution for universalizing approaches and introduction of common professional values of public servants. According to the results of the research, the author offers his own vision of the concept of public service, which is based on two levels - in the broad and narrow sense, where the concept in the narrow sense claims to be enshrined in a legislative act, the other remains a scientific term.
