Hamid Khan (born 16 April 1945) is a Pakistani writer, Supreme Court lawyer, a former Chairman Executive & vice Chairman of Pakistan Bar Council, former vice Chairman of Punjab Bar Council and former President of the Supreme Court Bar Association of Pakistan (2001–2003) and one of the founding partners of Cornelius, Lane and Mufti, a leading law firm in Pakistan. Mr HAMID KHAN studied law at the Universities of Punjab (Pakistan ) and Illinois (US) and has been practicing for over thirty years. Like many leading Pakistanis, he is a Punjabized ethnic Pashtun (Pathan).

He has authored five books on legal subjects, three of which-Islamic Law of Inheritance, Principles of Administrative Law and Administrative Tribunals for civil Servants in Pakistan-are prescribed as Textbooks at law schools. His book "Constitutional and Political History of Pakistan" is taught at the LLB level, and is a comprehensive reference on the making of Pakistan.

Khan was the lawyer of the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Mr. Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, when General Pervez Musharraf put forward a reference against the Chief Justice and Chaudhary decided to defend his case in the court. Hamid Khan contributed considerably to the Lawyers' Movement of Pakistan which led to the restoration of Chaudhry as Chief Justice of Pakistan.
