In the title compound, C(14)H(11)Cl(2)NO, the central C-C(O)-N-C amide unit makes dihedral angles of 68.71 (11) and 54.92 (12)°, respectively, with the dichloro-benzene and tolyl rings. The two aromatic rings are inclined at 16.25 (17)°. In the crystal, N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds link mol-ecules into zigzag chains propagating in . C-H⋯Cl contacts link these chains and additional C-H⋯O contacts generate stacks down b. Weak C-H⋯π and C-Cl⋯π inter-actions [Cl⋯centroid distance = 3.5422 (15) Å] may also stabilize the structure.
