Note : By default Justification is not required and you have perform the above steps to make it required.

Testing:
1) Log into OIM (I logged in as xelsysadm, but you may log in as anyone)
2) Open up Catalog
3) Request for Others (select an arbitrary user to request for)
4) Search for an application that has required fields that need to be filled out before submitting request
5) Add the application to cart
6) Checkout
7) Fill out required fields (such as justification)
8) Click on the downward facing greater than symbol next to "Justification and Effective Date" and also "Details" (this will collapse the sections)
9) Close out of Catalog tab by clicking on "x" next to "Catalog" in the tab
10) Open up Catalog again
11) Request for Others (select an arbitrary user to request for)
12) Search for same application as earlier (or any application that has required fields that need to be filled out before submitting request)
13) Add the application to cart
14) Checkout
15) In checkout screen, fields should be collapsed
