Bruno Julliard (born 9 February 1981) is the former chairman of the UNEF, the main student union in France. He studies public law at the University of Lyon. He is the current First Deputy Mayor of Paris.

Julliard was born in Le-Puy-en-Velay, Haute-Loire, Auvergne, where his mother, Arlette Arnaud-Landau, is now a Socialist mayor. His stepfather is a Socialist militant,[citation needed] and his grandfather was in the French Resistance during World War II, during which he was shot.

Julliard joined UNEF in 1999. He became the student vice-president of the University of Lyon and chairman of the university's student union in 2001. In 2003, he entered the UNEF National Board. From 2004 to 2006, he was elected to the National Council for Higher Education and Research (Conseil National de l'Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche), an advisory body to the French Ministry of Education.

Since July 2005, he has been the leader of the Majorité Nationale fraction and, therefore, chairman of the UNEF. He was among the protesting student leaders during the enormous social movement of 2005 against the CPE law.

Before being elected chairman of the UNEF, Julliard was a local branch leader of the French Young Socialist Movement (Mouvement des Jeunes Socialistes) and Socialist Party.

In 2011, Julliard came out as gay.[1]
