For nearly 200 years, LexisNexis® with its authoritative information from Butterworths® and Tolley® has combined a deep understanding of the legal and tax profession with technology innovation to help practitioners work more productively, advise with confidence and better manage their organisations in a changing legal environment.
LexisNexis® products and services are used by all the top law and accountancy firms, most large companies, almost all the local authorities in the UK and Whitehall departments. All universities in the UK with a qualifying law degree subscribe to LexisLibrary.
LexisNexis has been running a student engagement programme in the UK since 2002. In that time, over 400 law students have been employed by LexisNexis to help their fellow students get the most out of the LexisNexis online services that their university subscribes to.
As a global organization, LexisNexis values people of all ages, cultures, races, religions, nationalities and ethnicities regardless of gender or sexual orientation. We are committed to promoting a diverse workforce and strive to create a work environment that respects individuals and their contributions, and fosters innovation.
Diversity of people and ideas creates strength for our business and customers. We are passionate about attracting, retaining and developing the most talented and skilled individuals, regardless of background. We encourage our people to work across functions, geographies and cultures as one company.
LexisNexis UK is dedicated to promoting an inclusive and respectful work environment, where everyone has the opportunity to be themselves and realise their full potential. To this end, we have undertaken a number of diversity and inclusion initiatives:
- The LexisNexis Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Forum, which was set up to maintain and further develop an inclusive culture for everyone by improving the equality of opportunity, and promoting and celebrating diversity within LexisNexis.
- LexisNexis are proud to be members of Stonewall’s Diversity Champions Programme – Britain’s good practice forum on sexual orientation. Stonewall’s guidance and the Workplace Equality Index structure helps us develop our work not just around sexual orientation, but for all strands of diversity.
- LexisNexis Employee Resource Groups are established to foster an inclusive environment where employees feel empowered to develop their potential. LexisNexis currently has two Employee Resource Groups:
- LN Women Connected – LexisNexis’ networking group that empowers women to develop their careers and celebrate their many achievements, through a range of events, activities and community work.
- LN Pride is LexisNexis’ professional network for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees – providing a forum for networking opportunities and peer support between LGBT staff. The group also runs an LGBT Allies programme, to encourage involvement from all staff who have an interest in LGBT issues.
LexisNexis is delighted to be a Founder Member of Aspiring Solicitors and believes in Aspiring Solicitor’s commitment to increase diversity in the legal profession.
Many aspects of the Aspiring Solicitors programme match the work that LexisNexis has done over the years to help students e.g. peer to peer learning and pro bono support. LexisNexis will work with Aspiring Solicitors to support and develop the aspiring solicitors’ knowledge about the profession and to help students make informed decisions about their careers.
