Anthony Julian (March 25, 1902 – January 18, 1984) was a United States federal judge.

Julian was born in Italy and emigrated to the United States while a child. He received an A.B. from Boston College in 1925 and a J.D. from Harvard Law School in 1929. He was in private practice in Boston, Massachusetts from 1929 to 1953. He was a member of the town counsel of Watertown, Massachusetts from 1930 to 1932 and from 1941 to 1942. He was a faculty member at Boston College from 1934 to 1937, and served in the Massachusetts State Legislature from 1937 to 1938. He was in the United States Army, JAG Corps, during World War II, from 1942 to 1946, achieving the rank of Major. He was the United States Attorney for the District of Massachusetts from 1953 to 1959.

On September 9, 1959, Julian was nominated by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to a seat on the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts vacated by Bailey Aldrich. Julian was confirmed by the United States Senate and received his commission on September 10, 1959. He served as chief judge from 1971 to 1972, assuming senior status on August 1, 1972.
