Issuing publications and making presentations is the other main way (apart from training) in which BLC assists in educating, implementing and improving human rights and the rule of law in Burma.

BLC issues two regular publications: Legal Issues on Burma Journal (ISSN 1513-9174) and Journal of Constitutional Affairs (ISSN 1513-9182). These are funded by the German organization, Friedrich Neumann Stiftung.
