    Source Case

    Final Merits Test – Peer Reviewer and Conference Speaker –  (AAO Decision January 7th 2011 p9-10)

    Determination that the beneficiary has reached a “level of expertise indicating that the individual is one of that small percentage who have risen to the very top of their field of endeavor.” 8 C.F.R § 204.5(h)(2); and

    Determination “that the alien has sustained national or international acclaim and that his or her achievements have been recognized in the field of expertise.” 8 C.F.R § 204.5(h)(3)

    AAO Noted the Following:

    1. The beneficiary’s occasional participation (four times in ten years) in the review process is not conclusive evidence of his level of expertise. Needed evidence would include evidence that he served in an editorial position for a distinguished journal or completed numerous transcripts for a substantial number of journals.

    2. Participation in conferences or symposia does not elevate the beneficiary above almost all others in his field at the national or international level.

    AAO Final Decision

    The petition was denied and the appeal dismissed.
