There might be something if you use a site license, but if you don't, you can 
use either the global /usr/local/mathematica/Configuration/Kernel/init.m file 
or the ~/.Mathematica/4.0/Kernel/init.m file, and their counterparts end.m, 
to create a log file :

For instance the global kernel init file :

(** User Mathematica initialization file **)
{Date[],$UserName}>>>"<path to your log file>"

and for the end file :
(* You can add commands here *)
TimeUsed[]>>>"<path to your log file>"

You can add other information, as SessionTime, MaxMemoryUsed, and others (as 
described in  Principles of Mathematica / Global aspects of Mathematica 
sessions). If necessary, you can build your own functions in these 
initialization/termination files.

Note that these sessions management functions only apply to the Kernel, and 
not to the FrontEnd.
