Lawrence Washington Hall (1819 – January 18, 1863) was a U.S. Representative from Ohio.

Born in Lake County, Ohio, Hall graduated from Hudson College in 1839 where he studied law. He was admitted to the bar in 1843 and began practice in Bucyrus, Ohio, in 1844. He served as prosecuting attorney of Crawford County from 1845-1851; then as judge of the Court of Common Pleas from 1852-1857.

Hall was elected as a Democrat to the Thirty-fifth Congress (serving from March 4, 1857 to March 3, 1859). He subsequently resumed his law practice, having lost his reelection bid. In 1862, during the Civil War, he was imprisoned for alleged disloyalty to the Union. He died in Bucyrus, Ohio, on January 18, 1863 and was interred in Oakwood Cemetery.
