BioEditHamish, Hamish & Hamlin". He reunites with Jeff at Greendale when he shows up to the school for a N.A. meeting. As a successful attorney, he is respected for his skill inside the courtroom and reviled for his hedonistic nature outside of it. Despite his jovial demeanor, he possesses a ruthless side and is shown to be quite an opportunist. His first appearance was in the Season Two episode "Accounting for Lawyers" and he made his return in the Season Three episode "Introduction to Finality". He is portrayed by actor/comedian Rob Corddry.
In the study group's second year at Greendale together, Jeff spots an old law firm buddy of his named Alan Conner. Although reluctant to say hello, Abed forces his hand and Jeff reluctantly greets his former colleague. Alan is happy to see him didn't give Jeff grief over having to reenroll at school. He pointed out he himself was on campus to attend a court appointed Narcotics Anonymous meeting. Over Abed's objections, Jeff blows off class and joins Alan for a drink. For the next few days, this becomes a regular occurrence. Jeff misses several study group meetings reconnecting with Alan. When Jeff eventually introduced his friend to the group Alan made a bad impression after he traded insults with Pierce.
The two went to a bar where Alan mentioned Jeff's his fake law degree made him something of a legend amongst his former peers. Alan then invited Jeff to attend party at the law firm. Back at school, the group feared the bad influence Alan had on Jeff. Annie eventually recognized him as someone she met years ago at a N.A. meeting. She also remembered Alan bragged about getting a colleague fired after ratting him out to the state bar association. They confronted Jeff with their suspicions but he ignored their warnings. That night he went to the office party with Alan instead of the pop and lock contest he and the group were entered in. After the head of the firm Ted gave a speech, Alan admitted to Jeff he invited him with an ulterior motive in mind.
Knowing that Ted still favored Jeff, Alan was hoping that he could put in a good word for him becoming a partner at the firm. Their conversation was interrupted when the study group arrived at the party. Alan had invited them as well since Annie caught his eye when they were briefly introduced. Alan took her aside and flirted with her as she tried to get information from him about where his office was located.
In the study group's third year at Greendale, Shirley and Pierce have a falling out over their business venture "Shirley's Sandwiches". Pierce hired Alan Conner to represent him in a faux court case to win sole ownership of the business.
