William St Julien Arabin (1773–1841) was a British jurist who served as the United Kingdom Judge Advocate General for a three-and-a-half-month period (6 November 1838 – 21 February 1839).

Arabin attended St Pauls[disambiguation needed] and Corpus Christi College, Cambridge.

Judge Arabin was known as an eccentric figure who was notorious for his confused pronouncements. Some of his most famous quotes include:

  • If there ever was a case of clearer evidence than this of persons acting together, this case is that case... and
  • They will steal the very teeth out of your mouth as you walk through the streets — I know it from experience...
