InfoRobert F. Orr (b. 11 October 1946) is an American lawyer, formerly an Associate Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court.

Orr was born in Norfolk, Virginia and spent his childhood in Hendersonville, North Carolina. After earning his bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Orr served in the United States Army from 1968 to 1971. Orr returned to UNC-Chapel Hill to earn his law degree and then entered private law practice in Asheville, North Carolina. In 1986, Orr was appointed to the North Carolina Court of Appeals, and in 1994 was elected to the state's highest court. From 1992 to 1993, Orr served on the United States National Park System Advisory Board. Orr is also an adjunct faculty member at North Carolina Central University, and a member of the Board of Visitors for NCCU's Law School.

On 4 March 2004, Orr announced that he would retire from the state Supreme Court during the summer to head the newly-formed North Carolina Institute for Constitutional Law.

In December 2006, the Raleigh News and Observer reported that Orr was exploring a run for Governor of North Carolina in 2008
