"…the Center has become a uniquely important and valuable institution… it is reflective of Boris’ sustained commitment to the goals of normalizing trade practices throughout the Americas and promoting uniform legal structures to facilitate that objective."
"…the Center has received international recognition for its work to eliminate legal constraints impeding trade in the Western Hemisphere. The Center has been designated by the State Department as the U.S. entity to facilitate the exchange of scholars and legal materials relating to the legal aspects of trade among NAFTA countries. The Center’s work continues to grow in importance as commercial ties among the US, Mexico, and other Latin American nations increase."
"In order to ensure that North American business people can take the fullest advantage of this burgeoning trade relationship, it will be vital that the rules of the game be the same in each country… My compliments to the National Law Center for Inter-American Free Trade for initiating this process."
"I would like to express special recognition to Dr. Boris Kozolchyk for his support of inter-American free trade. The Center, inspired by Dr. Kozolchyk, played a definite part in making the North American Free Trade Agreement a reality. Center members have held a vision for many years of free trade as a stepping stone of respective legal systems in order to facilitate the exchange that results from this commercial agreement. The Mexican government works within the framework of its sovereignty so that free trade may contribute to the overall well-being, equity and equality of all Mexicans. On behalf of the United Mexican States, I congratulate the members of the National Law Center for Inter-American Free Trade for their accomplishments to date, and I wish them the best success for the future. "
"Thank you for your enlightening presentation during the Sonora/Arizona Supreme Court joint meeting… this was an historic event, the first time our two courts met. Your session outlining the implications of expanding free trade was one of the high points of our meetings. You and the Center have played a valuable role in what will undoubtedly result in future activities between the two courts."
"We believe [the Center] is an important development at a time when the countries of the Northern Hemisphere are looking to their regional trade ties as a foundation for future development."
"Congratulations on the formal dedication of the National Law Center for Inter-American Free Trade. This partnership [of the private and public sectors] has already resulted in the creation of the Center, and the future operations of the Center wills truly put Arizona and the United States at the cutting edge of free trade activities."
"The National Law Center has facilitated the creation of legal mechanisms to promote the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Without the National Law Center’s work, the ability of American citizens and businesses to benefit from enhanced trading relations with foreign nations would be substantially undermined."
"What I liked the most about the training was the practice sessions. Before attending, I had read the commercial code provisions on oral trials but I wasn’t sure how I was going to implement them into practice, especially because of their sharp contrast to our current system. The training was very useful in this regard and there is no doubt in my mind I will use what I learned when I next preside over a hearing."
