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.
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 5 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.
LexisNexis Legal & Professional is part of the RELX Group, along with LexisNexis Risk Solutions, Elsevier and Reed Exhibitions. LexisNexis Legal & Professional support RELX Diversity & Inclusion approach below.
Our people are our strength. Our workforce of over 30,000 people has an average length of service of 9.2 years.
Our people team is responsible for recruiting talented individuals and helping them develop in their role. We provide innovative learning and development opportunities for our employees and work with them to create an inclusive culture that enables a high-performing and engaged workforce.
At RELX we are passionate about making a positive impact on society and customers through our unique contributions as a business including access to information, advance of science and health, protection of society, promotion of the rule of law and access to justice, and fostering communities.
We are fully committed to creating a fair and equitable work environment for our people and in all the countries and territories in which we operate we seek to comply with local employment and equality laws.
We want RELX to be a great place to work, where our employees feel valued, have equal opportunities and benefit from pay equality, regardless of their gender, gender identity, national origin, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age or disability status.
Diversity and inclusion (D&I) are important to our future. We need the engagement of people from a wide range of backgrounds, experiences and ideas to achieve real innovation for our customers around the world.
Our D&I vision, set out above, articulates our commitment to a diverse workforce and an environment that respects individuals and their contributions. Our D&I strategy is focused on translating the vision into practical action. Among its commitments is maintaining a D&I Advisory Group composed of a senior business and HR leader from each business, supported by a broader D&I Working Group.
We also have more than 40 Employee Resource Groups across the business, such as women’s forums and pride groups, to facilitate support, mentoring and community involvement. In 2018 we held our first-ever Diversity Awareness Month with a competition open to all employees in order to showcase commitment to D&I across RELX and a video with testimonials from senior leaders on why D&I matters to them.
Our workforce is 51% female and 49% male. There are 42% female and 58% male managers, and 28% female and 72% male senior operational managers. Women make up 36% of the members of the RELX Boards.
We remain committed to promoting and enabling equal opportunity, regardless of gender, at every level in our organization.
To enable parity across all levels, we have undertaken several initiatives.
Recent examples of progress include:
Our D&I initiatives across the Group encompass our employees, our customers and our broader community:
PAY PHILOSOPHY AND PARITY
Our reward philosophy aims to support the company’s ability to attract, motivate and retain high performing employees. Our reward principles are underpinned by external equity, internal equity and pay for performance.
We follow rigorous internal processes of one over one approvals and carry out internal audits to ensure pay parity for employees doing the same or similar work in a geography. Additionally, we have a whistle-blower process via an internal hotline to ensure that any issue can be reported without prejudice.
RELX serves customers in more than 180 countries and has offices in about 40 countries. We are committed to following all local employee legislation, regulations and laws.
We conduct regular surveys to gather employee feedback. In 2018, we conducted a global employee opinion survey, with 90% participation, to hear from employees about how we are doing to make RELX an even better place to work.

I have been working at LexisNexis Legal & Professional part-time (More than 3 years)
I love working for Lexis! Not only do I enjoy it, but I also get Lexis gear which is awesome!
No cons at all! Great!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at LexisNexis Legal & Professional (Dayton, OH) in May 2012.
I was hired by a former subordinate who respected my skill set. There was no need for an interview. the hiring manager was a VP and he wanted me to become a member of his staff.
They offered me additional vacation time in place of my desired salary.
