Nathan Abbott (1854 – January 4, 1941) was an American lawyer and law teacher of distinction.
After some years of practice in the city of Boston, he was invited to become Tappan Professor of Law in the University of Michigan, and from that time on he devoted himself exclusively to legal scholarship and teaching. After a year at the University of Michigan, Abbott was appointed professor of law in Northwestern University and two years later, in 1895, he became professor of law and dean of Stanford Law School. He held that position until 1907, after which time he was a member of the law faculty of Columbia University, New York City. He was a legal scholar of wide reputation and a recognized authority on the English and American Law of Real Property.
