在这，张大律师采用的教导方式有别于其他的律师楼。 他会尝试让他的学生们先寻找答案或解决方案， 然后他才更改学生们的错误并加以解释和引领到对的方向。
除此之外，这律师楼还有许多值得大家学习的地方。其一员工们的尊重与合作。在这大家都乐意互相帮助，一起讨论问题并提议解决方案。这完全体现出大家的合作精神。在这的员工也乐意给予我不同的知识以让我办起事来更加得心应手。我从而发现工作也可以变得不再如此苦闷，而大家的热心和帮助使我感觉到他们是我的朋友而不是一般苦闷的工作伙伴。 我们经常一起准备食物和一块儿用餐。 用餐时，我们不忘天南地北以增进我们的感情。有时，我们还会有饭后点和娱乐。我们也一起庆祝员工们的生日，一块儿唱生日歌和享用蛋糕。在此，我感谢你们为我而设的庆祝让我觉得你们诚心的关爱。
