His business failing despite his family connections, Tucker relocated to Missouri where he opposed the Missouri Compromise and gained a judicial seat. Later returning to Virginia, he was appointed professor of law at his alma mater and spent the next thirty years "pour(ing) forth letters, books and speeches in defense of the rights of the South." This work contains twenty-two lectures, largely on constitutional law, and uniformly favorable to the idea of states' rights. Most were delivered at the College of William and Mary.
