Forgery law is an area of the law pertaining to falsification and fabrication of written instruments. It is often treated as a felony due to the serious implications of using false documents, although the handling of forgery varies by jurisdiction. Within each region, forgery is usually discussed in detail in the penal code, with clear definitions of the types of forgery and the penalties for different kinds of activity involving falsified written material.

Forgery can vary from faking a signature to generating an entire false document, and can also include modification of a document to change the contents. Forged documentation can be used to claim title to property, and in a variety of other activities, such as crossing international borders. In the art world, forgery of works of art, as well as documentation accompanying art, is a chronic problem, and historians also have to contend with forgery when evaluating historic documents in the course of their work. Forgery law is designed to set out penalties for different types of illegal activity involving falsified documents.
