Clément-Jules Broutin (4 May 1851 – 1889) was a French composer.
Born in Orchies, Broutin studied with Victor Delannoy at the Conservatoire of Lyon from 1871 before joining the Conservatoire de Paris. There he was a pupil of Émile Durand for harmony, César Franck for organ and Victor Massé for musical composition. After an honorary mention in 1877 he won the First Grand Prix de Rome with the three-part scene La fille de Jephté based on a text by Édouard Guinant.
During his stay at the Villa Medici in Rome, which was associated with the prize, Broutin composed Sinai, a work for orchestra, choir and soloists, which was premiered in 1881 in the hall of the Conservatoire de Paris. The work was received coolly by the audience, but critics praised it for the excellent quality of the composition, its exquisite taste and great intelligence.
In the following years he composed a number of songs and piano pieces, several orchestral pieces and an opera. Most of his works were published by "Lemoine". In his native town, a street was named after him.
