Eivind Saxlund (1858 – 10 December 1936) was a Norwegian lawyer and writer.

Saxlund was a barrister by occupation, a lawyer with access to work with cases in the Supreme Court of Norway. However, he is better remembered for his anti-Semitic literature. He published the pamphlet of Theodor Fritsch Jøder og Gojim ("Jews and Goyim") in 1910, translated it and wrote a preface, in Det 20de Århundre, with new editions published in 1911, 1922 and 1923. He also contributed to Mikal Sylten's anti-Semitic magazine Nationalt Tidsskrift, both economically and with articles.

Together with Anna Magdalene Sundt (1863–1950), Eivind Saxlund had the son Alf Eivind Saxlund, he too a barrister.

Saxlund died in late 1936, long before Norway was submit to Nazi rule (1940–1945).
