A Last Will and Testament dictates the way that that your assets will be distributed and utilized following your death. A Living Will states your wishes regarding life support in the event that you are in a persistent vegetative state or irreversible coma and cannot communicate your wishes. They are very different documents. After death, the Living Will can grant consent to an autopsy, bequeath anatomical gifts, and direct the disposition of your remains (whether you wish to be buried, or cremated, or neither.) Most other posthumous decisions are addressed in a Last Will and Testament.
