He played a leading role in the establishment of experiential education at LaTrobe University in the 1970s and was coordinator of Springvale Monash Legal Service (SMLS) from 1988-2000. During his time at SMLS, Adrian oversaw the introduction of community development content within Monash clinical curricular and established the first Australian specialised clinic (for victims of sexual assault) in conjunction with the South Eastern Centre Against Sexual Assault. He later oversaw the development of the Family Law Assistance Program (FLAP) in conjunction with the Commonwealth Attorney General’s Department.
