In the title compound, C13H11Cl2NO2S, the dihedral angle between the aromatic rings is 76.62 (10)°and the C-S-N-C linkage between the rings adopts a gauche conformation [torsion angle =-51.4 (2)°]. A weak intra-molecular C-H⋯O inter-action closes an S(6) ring. In the crystal, inversion dimers linked by pairs of N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds generate R 2 2(8) loops.
