Job descriptions in Cuomo AG office

In addition to a Executive Deputy Attorney General for Criminal Justice (Robin Baker), incoming New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo has named an Executive Deputy Attorney General for Economic Justice (Eric Corngold) and an Executive Deputy Attorney General for Social Justice (Mylan Denerstein).

Those latter two job titles are, well, let's call them evocative. They might almost be taken as suggesting that the new deputies are going to be in charge of deploying the office's considerable powers of legal coercion in pursuit of "economic justice" and "social justice", both rather vague concepts. Are the titles newly coined, or did predecessor Spitzer also employ them in his deputies' job titles? I haven't been able to find out for sure, but a Google search on "Deputy Attorney General for Economic Justice" turns up no results from the offices of Spitzer or any other state AG; ditto for the same search with "Social" replacing "Economic".
