Professor Davidson served as associate director of the Law Library and an associate professor of library administration at the University of Illinois College of Law from 2005 to 2022. There for 17 years, she taught first-year legal research for JD students and legal research and writing for LLM and JSD students. She also taught law librarianship and legal research in the iSchool, formerly known as the Library and Information Science Program at the University of Illinois.
