Reuven Rivlin (Hebrew: ראובן ריבלין‎, born 9 September 1939) is an Israeli lawyer, politician, currently serving as a speaker of the Knesset. He belongs to conservative Likud. A former Speaker of the Knesset, in 2007 he ran in the election for President as the Likud candidate. He withdrew after the first round of voting when it became clear that Kadima MK Shimon Peres had sufficiently broad support to inevitably win in a run-off.

Born in Jerusalem, he received an LL.B. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and worked as a lawyer.
