The purposes of this Recent Development are to analyze the effect of the Seventh Circuit's work product decision on disqualification standards and to develop a consistent framework for determining whether access to the work product of an attorney disqualified for opposing a former client should be allowed.

Thus the Recent Development proposes an Ethical Consideration regarding access to work product that reflects the ethical concerns underlying Canon.
