A Texas law librarian and legal technologist was included in the annual Fastcase 50 list, which honors top innovators in the legal field.

Andre Davison, the research technology manager at Blank Rome in Houston, was named to the list alongside other attorneys, professors, and entrepreneurs from around the world.

He was honored for introducing and maintaining information resources, both purchased and internally developed, especially to the firm’s intellectual property practice. In 2019, Davison was honored as the winner of the third annual American Association of Law Libraries Tournament for his project on seamless access to secondary sources.

He is active in Blank Rome’s diversity and inclusion efforts and was honored with the firm’s Honorable Nathaniel R. Jones Diversity Award. Davison was recently elected vice chair/chair-elect of the newly constituted Black Law Librarians Special Interest Section of AALL. He previously served as president of the Houston Area Law Librarians during the 2019-2020 year and is currently a member of the AALL Private Law Librarians and Information Professionals Special Interest Section executive board.
