In the molecular structure of the title compound, C15H14ClNO, the amide group forms dihedral angles of 15.8 (2) and 27.2 (2)°, respectively, with the benzoyl and aniline rings, while the angle between the benzoyl and aniline rings is 11.5 (1)°. The crystal structure is stabilized by N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, which give rise to infinite chains running along the c axis.
