In the Standard Model, the three charged lepton are identical copies of each other, apart from mass differences. Experimental tests of this feature in decays of semileptonic b hadrons, such as B->D*taunu, are highly sensitive to New Physics particles which preferentially couple to the 3rd generation. This talk will review the latest lepton universality tests in semileptonic b->c transitions at LHCb.
