These are the results of the men's 71 kg (also known as lightweight) competition in judo at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. A total of 35 men competed in this event, limited to jūdōka whose body weight was less than, or equal to, 71 kilograms. Competition took place in the Georgia World Congress Center.
As there were more than 32 qualifiers for the tournament, three first round matches were held to reduce the field to 32 judoka.
- Danny Kingston (GBR) defeated Sergey Kolesnikov (RUS)
- Bertalan Hajtos (HUN) defeated Juan González (GUA)
- Andrei Golban (MDA) defeated Davor Vlaskovac (BIH)
The gold and silver medalists were determined by the final match of the main single-elimination bracket.
The losing semifinalists as well as those judoka eliminated in earlier rounds by the four semifinalists of the main bracket advanced to the repechage. These matches determined the two bronze medalists for the event.
