Case Summary:

A U.S.-based tenure-track assistant professor with a doctor of philosophy and master of arts in communication hired North America Immigration Law Group to gather an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition on her behalf. Her strong academic background has laid the foundation for her current position as an assistant professor at a well-known Michigan University. Her work there involves teaching communication courses, conducting scholarly research, and undertaking service responsibilities for the department and the university. Her work in this capacity has led to her reputation as an outstanding professor, as attested to by experts in submitted letters of support. When we proceeded to evaluate her credentials, we reviewed her research work focusing on the influence of communication practices in media and interpersonal relationships, specifically focusing on parenting styles, gender-based violence, and racial/ethnic discrimination, and we confirmed that we could direct her way to the EB1B case approval. Therefore, in her EB1B petition packet, we added the following details:

  • It was noteworthy to mention the 8 peer-reviewed journal articles and 2 book chapters she published in highly impacting journals, accumulating 155 citations by several well-reputed researchers.
  • As a result, throughout the past few years, her work has been among the most cited in the field, and she has continuously received more citations than one might anticipate from a typical professor in the subject. Because of this, it can be objectively confirmed that our client has made notable original contributions that are supported by her publications since her accomplishments in the field of communication studies have received widespread recognition and reliance.
  • In total, she has conducted at least 14 reviews. This significant evaluation task is only assigned to the most accomplished professionals in the area, which further attests to her esteemed reputation in the industry.
  • Furthermore, corroborating her expertise in the field is of great value to the global communication studies community. Thus, we submitted evidence of 4 recommendation letters from experts in the field attesting to the importance and significance of her original research contributions. One of them stated:

“In summation, [our client] has displayed a remarkable aptitude for her research on depictions of sexual violence in Indian films. She has proven her value through her numerous achievements in communication studies, including her service as a peer reviewer and her many published articles. It is crucial that she continues producing important research in the future, as her work offers specific benefits to key national interests.”

For the past 12 years, our client has conducted research in the area of communication studies. She has at least three years of research experience, which attests to the fact that her work continues to benefit the entire country by laying the groundwork for future advancements in communication studies. Her research is also continuously disseminated through publications. Because of our unwavering dedication and the upgrading of her case to the premium processing service, our client was able to successfully obtain her EB1B approval in just seven days. We therefore want to express our gratitude for her trust and wish her luck in all of her future pursuits.
