My points in all this are simple with respect to the Obamas’ licenses to practice law:(1) Michelle Obama went inactive in 1994, despite a Harvard Law School degree, which is very strange, unless she was doing so to avoid a hearing on something; (2) her husband “retired” in January 2008. I am not saying that they were ever formally charged with misconduct. I am saying that the most plausible reason for their having abandoned their licenses was to avoid disciplinary action and the threat of public disbarment. That was what Nixon and Clinton fully understood. My critics do not, or, being lawyers, pretend not to.
It was voluntary on their part in the same was that it was voluntary on Nixon’s part and Clinton’s part. If you want to avoid being disbarred, you can retire or else go inactive.
If you want to avoid a hearing on whatever issue a critic has raised with the Bar, the matter will not be raised publicly if you go inactive or retire. It is all informal. You are allowed to depart gracefully. No hard feelings. There is still hope. And there surely has been change.

Obama’s supporters – several of them lawyers – have sent me emails crying “foul.” I don’t much care. This is not a court of law. This is a court of public opinion.
The Snopes entry does not deal with the problem, namely, providing a plausible explanation for two people walking away from the lifetime income and prestige to be gained by certification by Harvard Law School. Michelle Obama was 29 when she quit (went inactive). The Bar granted her this request when she turned 30.

Michelle's placement on the hospital BOD is of far more concern, IMO.

No Republican contender's wife would have been allowed to get away with that.

You conspiracy theorists are funny. There are requirements to maintain a law license. Most significant is continuing education. I believe at that time Mrs. Obama was some muckity muck in a hospital and an active law license would be unnecessary. Rather than spend the time on the continuing education, one can place her license on inactive status. Not very exciting for you birther types, but probably the truth nonetheless.

You apologists crack me up...my mother was an RN and maintained her license until she was 81 (and yes, that required continuing education.) But Moochele was too busy at age 29, having only been awarded her law degree FOUR years earlier, to hold on to her license?

Inactive means inactive, dumbarse.
These same two, inactive attorneys claimed just last year that they only finished paying off their college loans in 2004 -- which would be 10 years AFTER Michelle became inactive, and only one year prior to Barack becoming inactive.
What kind of professional invests years of life and a decade of debt into becoming an attorney, only to abandon that career...prior to paying for it?
Even Bill Clinton kept his law license current until it was suspended by the State of Arkansas after his perjury in the Lewinsky matter.
1) Inactive is a voluntary status available through every state entity that regulates and certifies attorneys to practice law.

2) The status of their student loan debt is absolutely irrelevant.

3) Many attorneys quit practicing law either temporarily, or long term, but retain "inactive" status to permit re-entry into the active practice of law in the event that they might desire to do so in the future. Attorneys do this for a wide variety of reasons, including health, child rearing, or more lucrative opportunities outside of the practice of law.

You really don't have a clue. That's clearly because you ride the Glenn Beck/Rush Limbaugh/right wing conspiracy train without ever looking beyond what you read from the idiots serving as conductors.

Clinton and Nixon surrendered their licenses. They did not choose inactive status. The two are not the same.

You're a bit confused.

No shit, Sherlock. Tip's referring to the mindset that would lead to someone going inactive after the achievement of paying off all that debt, not to mention passing the exam only four years earlier.

Your "facts" are quite simply...wrong.

She was never on the BOD of the hospital that employed her. She held executive positions there, and she started working there in 2002, long before her husband was ever running as a Presidential candidate. Her husband was a state senator from 97-04, and a US senator from 05 to 08.

She was on the BOD of Tree House Foods, not the hospital.

There are many people who get law degrees and never get licensed because they take jobs that don't require one.

Slowly, so you understand:

Student loan interest is typically relatively low, so there is little incentive to pay it off before its due. Most people are better off financially to make payments, and invest their money elsewhere.

She was earning her income outside of the practice of law. The cost of maintaining an "active" status law license is at least 10 to fifteen times the cost of maintaining "inactive" status, when one considers the annual registration fees ($350 biennially for active status in Ohio, no fee for inactive, and 24 hours of Continuing education credits biennially at a cost of about $20-$30 per credit hour), not to mention the time invested in CEU's.

Its a no brainer, strictly economics driven decision. If you're not using your license to earn your income, you choose inactive status.

But no, you all love your conspiracies too much to see the truth.

How's Glenn Beck coming along with that Boston Bomber/White House evidence, by the way?

How many sets of kneepads do you wear through daily on behalf of Barack and Michelle?

As has been demonstrated, there is plenty of room for skepticism and speculation with regard to Michelle's and Barack's abandonment of their Ivy League-stamped law careers so soon after embarking upon them, and while still indebted for them.
