Extraordinary and Outstanding: O-1As and EB-1s for Science and Business - Recording (.MP3)
2:00 PM (ET)
The panelists on this intermediate session will examine how to demonstrate extraordinary or outstanding ability for O-1A petitions in the sciences or business. While the O-1B for artists and entertainers has clear parameters for what is considered “extraordinary,” the concept is much more amorphous in other sectors. The panelists will present ways to document the beneficiary’s ability, and discuss strategies for presenting this information to USCIS in the most compelling manner. They also will review the National Interest Exception (NIE) to the relevant presidential proclamations, and address whether the level of ability required for an O-1A petition may rise to the level of what is required for the NIE.
