Named after the First Chief Justice of the Philippine Supreme Court, Cayetano S. Arellano, the school, a non-stock non-profit institution, was established in 1938 and boasts of more than six decades of providing quality legal education.
Foremost of the school objective is to create global lawyers, practitioners who are deeply educated in the law, practice-ready, and devoted to service not only in the local but also the international community. Arellano Law prides itself for being one of the most populous law schools in the Philippines with faculty members who have distinguished themselves in law practice, the judiciary, government service, and the academe. The law school revels in being one of the few schools in the Philippines that produce the most number of lawyers in the annual bar examinations administered by the Supreme Court.

The Center was founded in November 2002 under the auspices of the Arellano University School of Law, following the launching of the school’s LAWPHiL Project, considered as one of the most popular on-line and electronic databank of Philippine law and jurisprudence accessible for free to the general public.
The Center is pursuing projects in research, publication, policy initiatives and advocacy, capability building, academic support, and linkages in the field of information and communication technology as it affects the Philippine legal system.
Among the significant activities of the Center is the publication of the first quarterly IT Law Journal in the Philippines and the formation of the first law student-based IT Law Society in 2004.
