In this thesis we outline a proposal to measure Lorentz Invariance Violation (LIV) in the weak interaction, by looking at the gamma-ray distribution from polarized nuclei following beta-decay. The theory of how nuclear become oriented is presented, and the gamma ray distribution of the daughter nucleus is calculated relative to the preferred direction in absolute space. Observables that can be used to measure this effect are defined, and a detector setup is outlined. It is concluded that such an experiment is feasible.
