Lorentz Lange (23 December 1783 – 8 March 1860) was a Norwegian judge and politician.

He is not to be confused with Lorenz Lange, a Russian official in Siberia.

He was born in Vang, Hedmark.[1]

He was appointed by the government as the first Professor of Law at the University of Oslo in 1816, where he served until 1825.[2] From 1825 to 1858 he served as Supreme Court Assessor.[1]

He was elected to the first session of the Parliament of Norway in 1814, representing the constituency Christiansand. He was re-elected in 1815. In 1833 he was re-elected for a third term, representing the constituency of Akershus Amt.[3]
