In the title compound, C14H14ClNO2S, the N—H bond points away from the dimethylphenyl ring plane. The molecule is twisted at the S atom, with a C—SO2—NH—C torsion angle of −75.5 (2)°. The two aromatic rings are tilted relative to each other by 63.3 (1)°. The Cl atom on the chlorobenzene ring is disordered over two sites with site-occupation factors of 0.59 (3) and 0.41 (3), respectively. The crystal structure features inversion-related dimers linked by intermolecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
