Charles Leonard Levin (born April 28, 1926 in Detroit, Michigan) was a Michigan jurist. He served as a Michigan Court of Appeals judge from 1966 to 1972 and as a justice of the Michigan Supreme Court from 1973 to 1996.

Levin's father, Theodore Levin, was a federal district court judge. His brother, Joseph Levin, was a candidate for a seat in the United States House of Representatives. His cousin Carl Levin is a U.S. senator for Michigan. His cousin Sander Levin is a U.S. representative.

Levin was married to a former law clerk, Helene White, a Michigan Court of Appeals judge since 1992. White was nominated by President Bill Clinton to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit at the end of his first term. A hearing on her nomination was blocked by then-U.S. Senator from Michigan, Spencer Abraham. Angry with Clinton for not fulfilling an agreement concerning judicial nominations from Michigan, Abraham kept White's nomination stalled in the Senate Judiciary Committee during the entirety of Clinton's second term. The couple was divorced in November 2006. In an unexpected move, White was later re-nominated to the Sixth Circuit by President George W. Bush on April 15, 2008.

Charles Levin and Helene White have two children, Benjamin Joseph White Levin and Francesca Rhoda White Levin born in 1993 and 1996 respectively. Levin resides in Detroit.
