Eilert Stang Lund (born 15 July 1939) is a Norwegian judge.

He graduated as cand.jur. from the University of Oslo in 1965 and as Master of Law from Harvard University in 1973. He then worked as a consultant in the Ministry of Justice and the Police from 1965, as an attorney and lawyer in the Office of the Attorney General of Norway from 1967, and as a private lawyer from 1975 to 1995. He is a Supreme Court Justice from 1995 to his retirement in 2009.[1][2]

He is a second cousin of fellow Justice Ketil Lund.[1]

On 5 February 2008, the Standing Committee on Scrutiny and Constitutional Affairs of the Parliament of Norway recommended that a commission be named to investigate and, if warranted, prosecute for impeachment three of the Norwegian Supreme Court Justices who presided over the cases of Fritz Moen, a victim of miscarriage of justice. The three were Lund, Magnus Matningsdal and Karin Maria Bruzelius.[3] However, when the case was treated by the Standing Committee on Justice three months later, it was closed.[4]

Lund has also been a member of the board of the Norwegian Glacier Museum.[5]
