About Alex Monaco

Obviously, law is a complex subject and therefore not everyone can understand it, but it is not helped by the use of legalese. That’s partly why the average person still really struggles to use our legal systems.

We are striving to make law accessible to all, not just through free information, but also with technology that is easy to understand, and easy to use.

With the help of artificial intelligence, the potential for empowering lay people has really increased. I trained in data science and helped build our Virtual Lawyer tool, which won the 2021 Law Society Award for Tech & Innovation.

The other thing which keeps me motivated is the team spirit here at Monaco’s, which makes all of this possible.
