There is a way to get Custom Label statically in APEX as documented here


Can I get this label without hardcoding Label_Name?

What I've tried so far (and did not work)

You cant get dynamic custom labels in Apex:

Check out this idea

check out this link has a workaround solution which you can try in VF context:

 public static String getLabelString(String labelName ){
    Component.Apex.OutputText output = new Component.Apex.OutputText();
    output.expressions.value = '{!$Label.' + labelName + '}';
    return String.valueOf(output.value);

    Just be prepared for an Internal Server Error if you try to get a label that doesn't exist... the resulting error is not catchable/blockable.

    This doesn't work any longer. You get an error it is restricted to VF Controllers being called from a VF page. Commented Mar 21, 2018 at 19:32
