It is being developed by Access Social Care who provide free legal advice to people with social care needs. Alice was developed with funding from the Nesta Challenge

Alice and the testing process was introduced by Miriam Valencia, Head of Operations at ASC, who thanked LSBU students for their ongoing support for the project.

Associate Professor Andy Unger, Head of the Law Division, who teaches on the module, says that helping to test Alice allows students to experience how technology is improving access to justice and equips them with skills and experiences that will help them find jobs in a legal profession that is increasingly reliant on technology and quality of life.
