In the Standard Model, the three charged leptons are identical copies of each other,
apart from mass differences. Experimental tests of this feature in semileptonic decays
of b-hadrons are highly sensitive to New Physics particles which preferentially couple
to the 2nd and 3rd generations of leptons.
A review of the latest lepton universality tests in semileptonic $b\to c$ transitions
at LHCb is reported.
