The Nieszawa Statutes () were a set of laws enacted in the Kingdom of Poland in 1454, in the town of Nieszawa. Kazimierz IV Jagiellon made a number of concessions to the nobility in exchange for their support in the Thirteen Years' War. Among other things, the Statutes required the King to seek the lords' approval when issuing new laws, levying the pospolite ruszenie, or imposing new taxes. The Statutes strengthened the position of the nobility at the expense of the other estates.

Under the influence of Cardinal Zbigniew Oleśnicki, who was biased against Jews and who opposed the tolerant measures originated by Casimir III and affirmed by later kings, the Statutes of Niesza included the provisions that Jews' rights be "restricted when they contradict canon law" and that Jews be compelled to wear distinctive clothing. However, this was never enforced in practice.
