to show respect. similarly it used to be custom to (and some people still do) rise when a guest (gentleman) comes to, or leaves from, the table (dinner table, restaurant table, etc).
I believe it is just to show respect for the judge's position...........
Two reasons. First, as others have said, it shows respect. Second, even if you aren't feeling respectful, the judge has a lot of power in his or her court room. Bad idea to show a lack of respect by not standing.
I actually once had a trial where opposing counsel never stood up. Every time the judge got up, I stood up. She made a point of thanking me. Opposing counsel never got the hint. I won the case, not because I stood up, but you better believe it made an impression on the judge, and I am sure she felt more favorably inclined towards me. And if that lawyer ever went before that judge again, you better believe she remembered his behavior.
