In this paper is proposed an agent-based hybrid Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) for Legal domain by combining Case-based Reasoning and Rule-based System. This system has been developed considering Problem-based Learning as a pedagogical approach. The aim is to engage Law students into interactions with ITS based on the resolution of Legal problems. The starting point of these interactions occurs when ITS submits a penal situation to Law students. Then, students are expected to learn by means of two fundamental but different skills to solve legal problems. Firstly, they should know how to retrieve relevant cases and Legal concepts about the cases, and secondly, how to use them effectively as examples to justify positions in a Legal argument.
