Robert Redman (d. 1540), English printer, specializing in law. Redman started printing in London in about 1525 with the publication of an edition of the Magna Carta. Redman's law publications brough fierce rivalry from Richard Pynson, who was previously the sole publisher of law in London. When Pynson died in 1530, Redman took over his printing and bookselling business on Fleet Street.

Most of Redman's publications were legal works, though he did print significant editions of Littleton's Tenures and Cicero's Paradoxa
