Douglas Jamieson (14 April 1880 – 31 May 1952) was a Scottish Unionist politician and judge.

Educated at Cargilfield School, Fettes College, the University of Glasgow and Edinburgh University,[citation needed] Jamieson was admitted as an advocate in 1911[citation needed] and became a King's Counsel in 1926.[1]

Jamieson was an unsuccessful candidate for Stirling and Falkirk in 1929 and was elected for Glasgow Maryhill in October 1931,[2] holding the seat until his retirement in 1935. He was Solicitor General for Scotland from October 1933[3] until March 1935, and Lord Advocate from March to October 1935.[4] He was appointed a Privy Counsellor in May 1935.[5]

On his resignation, he was appointed in November 1935 to the bench of the Court of Session,[6] with the judicial title Lord Jamieson, replacing Lord Blackburn. He held this post until his death in 1952 aged 72.
