The businesswoman is appealing a verdict on her earlier challenge over the legality of Boris Johnson's decision to prorogue parliament for five weeks.
During the trial, a number of pro- and anti-Brexit protesters have gathered outside the Supreme Court.
Around 40 anti-Brexit demonstrators started the day with a silent protest, and later some were chanting "save our democracy, stop the coup", while around 100 interested passers-by looked on.
In addition, a small group of pro-Brexit supporters - one carrying a flag with the words "Remoaners are traitors" - also remained outside the court.
As Miller left the court she faced both cheers and boos from anti and pro-Brexit supporters respectively.
She was briefly followed from the door of the court by photographers and a handful of pro-Brexit demonstrators, some of whom shouted "traitor", "shyster" and "Brexit now" after her.
