Jiří Pospíšil (born 24 November 1975 in Chomutov) is a Czech politician, a former member of the Chamber of Deputies. He has had two spells as his country's Justice Minister, firstly between 2006 and 2009, then later between 2010 and 2012. He is the youngest person to hold this position in the country's history.

In 1999, he graduated from the Faculty of Law at the University of West Bohemia. Between 2009-2010, he was the Dean of the same faculty. Since 2010 (until June 2012) he became again Justice Minister in the Government of Petr Nečas.
