Idowu, the principal lawyer at Andrew Law, has several years of post-call experience from two jurisdictions (Canada and Nigeria). Idowu obtained his Bachelor of Law degree from the University of Benin and his designation as a lawyer from the Nigerian Law School. Idowu practiced in Nigeria prior to relocating to Canada.

Idowu graduated from the University of Alberta with a Masters degree in Law (LLM). Idowu was called to the Alberta bar after completing his articles with Field LLP and Alberta Health Services; he is also a member of the Northwest Territories (NWT) bar. His legal experience cuts a rich profile as he has worked in health services, law enforcement and in post secondary sectors.

Idowu is very passionate about community building and currently volunteers with various community initiatives in the city of Edmonton. Amongst others, he volunteers with the Edmonton Community Legal Centre (ECLC) as a lawyer, and through his commitment with the ECLC, continues to provide public legal education on Canada's immigration and family law to target groups and organizations. He also presently sits on the province's Attendance Board under the Schools Act.
Idowu's success is driven by his passion for law and his deep concern for his clients' well being. At all times and with all matters, he applies himself conscientiously and tenaciously.
Idowu's most enjoyable times are those he spends with his family. In his spare time, he loves to watch soccer, cycle and take long walks with his two lovely boys. He also enjoys reading and teaching, meeting with friends and writing about global political and socio-economic issues.
