LexisNexis Legal & Professional – Why Work For Us?


There's never been a more exciting time to join the LexisNexis Legal & Professional team.

Our goal is to revolutionize the way customers in legal, corporate, tax, government, academic and non-profit organizations work by combining a deep understanding of their needs, emerging technologies and powerful content and software. 

Our teams are developing and delivering what was once unimaginable through the use of Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, the Cloud and Open Source tools.

As a team and in collaboration with customers and key actors, we’re in a unique position to transform the industry through information, technology and analytics while having a powerful, positive impact on society by advancing the rule of law.

Through the engineering of information, we're:

  • Providing comprehensive, primary law records in 20 countries around the world
  • Maintaining a global, legal database with 2,000 terabytes of content including legal cases and codes as well as news and business data, making it 150x the size of Wikipedia
  • Continually exploring and updating more than 1 trillion connections across all content types within the LexisNexis database to deliver the latest legal info via computer, tablet or smartphone


As rule of law increases in any given country, access to decent work and economic growth tends to rise, families are able to lift themselves out of poverty, innovation and infrastructure are stimulated, health and well-being increase, and there are reduced inequalities and acts of violence, including improvement in gender equality. See our Rule of Law Impact Tracker and read more here.

The rule of law is the foundation for the development of peaceful, equitable and prosperous societies. We believe that for the rule of law to be effective, there must be equality under the law, transparency of law, an independent judiciary and access to legal remedy.

Yet, about half of the world’s population live outside the shelter of the law. That’s 4 billion people struggling for their basic, human rights on a daily basis.

At LexisNexis Legal & Professional, our underlying purpose as a business is to advance the rule of law around the world. We’re working to bring the percentage of people living outside the umbrella protection of the rule of law down to zero through our day-to-day business operations, products and services, and actions as a corporate citizen.

This work is led through the efforts and creativity of our 10,000 people and in collaboration with customers and stakeholders in law firms, courts, businesses, governments, academia, associations, NGOs and the United Nations. Because progress is possible when we join together.


More than 10,000 employees in over 175 countries across 6 continents make up our global organization. We value people of all ages, cultures, races, religions, nationalities and ethnicities regardless of gender identity and/or expression of sexual orientation.

LexisNexis network groups further the company’s efforts to build an inclusive culture that embraces diversity. Our Women’s, African American, Multicultural, Veterans, and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender networks advance the community, diversity and mentorship.

    Client Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience


    I received an email from a recruiter and scheduled a phone interview. I thought the phone interview went well. The recruiter let me know that she wanted to schedule a follow up call with myself and the hiring managers, and that I could expect to hear back from her by email the following week. I never heard another word. I sent her an email to thank her for her time and inquire about next steps, but did not receive a response. How inconsiderate and unprofessional.
