ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s chief administrative judge, who oversees the administration of the statewide court system, is stepping down to take a position at Hofstra’s law school.

Judge Gail Prudenti will become executive director of the Center for Children, Families and the Law at Hofstra University and special adviser to the law school’s dean Eric Lane.

New York Chief Judge Lippman says he’s also appointing Prudenti to the state’s Permanent Judicial Commission on Access to Justice for Children and the Permanent Commission on Access to Justice.

After 10 years as a trial judge, she was an associate justice of the Appellate Division for the Second Judicial Department, where she was appointed presiding justice in 2002.

In 2011, Lippman appointed her the state’s chief administrative judge.
