Is Michelle Obama a Lawyer?

I heard that Michelle Obama was court ordered by the Illinois State Supreme Court in 1993 to surrender her law license, is this true? If that happen, does it mean that Michelle Obama is not a lawyer anymore?
What happened to her license? Can she still work as a lawyer? I have the feeling that they are hiding something!
As far as I know she still practiced the law and was still a lawyer when Obama assumed the presidency.

Yes Michelle Obama is a lawyer, I mean, she studied to became a lawyer but in 1993 she voluntarily took her law license to "inactive" status and she can reactivate her license whenever she wants. Michelle Obama decided her lawyer license be changed to inactive because she no longer practiced law and lawyers with an active status have to pay annual fees. So is really pointless to pay for something you aren't using.
But Michelle is a lawyer.
