Manuel Gonzales Araullo (January 1, 1853 – July 26, 1924) was the third Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines. He served from November 1, 1921 until his death on July 26, 1924.


During ths Spanish regime, he was a Relator de la Real Audencia de Manila, as well as its judge-at-large. He eventually became a judge in Manila, as well as a prosecuting attorney in Cebú and Manila. He was also a professor of law at UST. Araullo graduated from Colegio de San Juan de Letran in Manila earning the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy.

Although expected to be appointed in the newly formed Supreme Court in 1901, he was not chosen, after which he became a judge in Pampanga, Tarlac and Nueva Écija, then again in Manila, before being elevated in the Supreme Court in 1913.

His fair judgments in his cases as a judge earned him the title of "The Just Judge".

Manuel Araullo High School in Manila is named after him. Araullo University in Nueva Écija, where he had a long stint as a judge, was also dedicated to him.
