In Brazil, all legal professionals must demonstrate their knowledge of the law and its application by passing the OAB exams, the national Bar exams. This article describes the construction of a new data set and some preliminary experiments on it, treating the problem of finding the justification for the answers to questions. The results provide a baseline performance measure against which to evaluate future improvements. We discuss the reasons to the poor performance and propose next steps. © 2017 The authors and IOS Press.
