In the title compound, [CuCl2(C12H15N3O2)2], the CuII ion is located on an inversion center and is four-coordinated in a distorted square-planar geometry by two chloride anions and two N atoms from two (1H-1,2,3-benzotriazol-1-yl)methyl 2,2-dimethylpropanoate ligands. The Cl—Cu—N angles of 90.55 (9) and 89.45 (9)° are close to ideal values. In the crystal, weak π–π stacking interactions are observed between inversion-related benzene rings [centroid–centroid distance = 4.0028 (6) Å].
