In this course we will take an in-depth look at the major Code provisions applicable to executive compensation. We will spend considerable time analyzing the regulations and other guidance under Code Sections 409A, 457, 162 and 280G. We will also consider recent changes to executive compensation rules implemented through recent bailout legislation. This will be a discussion intense course. Students will be expected to carry on high level discussions based on real-world examples. Students should have completed the Introductory Executive Compensation course or demonstrate ability beyond a basic level of knowledge in this subject area.
